that a budget deal is closer. in asia, japan's nikkei rising above the 10,000 mark, wow, the first time in more than eight months. still a ways from 50,000. among the catalysts, expectations of more aggressive monetary stimulus from the bank of japan. the boj wraps up a two-day meeting with a policy announcement tomorrow. >>> the world bank in the meantime is raising its 2013 economic growth forecast for china and for developing east asia. the organization says that the region remains resilient despite the lackluster performance of the global economy. the world bank sees china expanding by 8.4% next year. it's expecting that it will be fueled by fiscal stimulus and the faster implementation of large investment projects. today's forecast is higher than an earlier one that was sited in a world bank report in october. 8.4%, not bad both if you can get it. >>> speaking of china, the united states is moving forward with plans to slap steep anti-dumping duties on wind turbine towers that are imported from china at prices that are deemed unfairly low. the news from the commerce department comes as u.s
on with the japanese elections? the new prime minister told the bank of japan we want more stimulus. guess who's meeting thursday? the bank of japan. japan's exports fall for the sixth straight month. you are going to see the bank of japan on thursday announce new stimulus measures. you're going to see efforts to weaken the yen. it's going to get even weaker. that is the old yen carry trade. that may be where some of this money is coming from to do the odd little trades that seem to be going on. out of bonds, into stocks, selling gold as well. i think that's a real factor here. what caught my eye this morning, there was a survey out saying the hedge funds is the most exposed to the market since 2010. a lot of people mentioned that and said, that is a contrary indicator, high levels of activity in the stock market for hedge funds, often a negative indicator overall. let me mention night capital. they are selling themselves to geico. i took two-to-one ratio. this is a good deal all around. you're going to marry the biggest, fastest traders out there, getco. you're going to marry that with knight
great support out of the ecb and the bank of japan is coming online. the only thing holding the market down is the potential consequences of the fiscal cliff. you get movement there, i think you take out the highs of the year and head toward 1,500 pretty quickly. >> meaning, you know, by the end of -- within days of reesk that deal? >> you know, the pace of assent may be not quite that rapid. i think we see that by the first quarter, if we get a good fiscal cliff deal. i think this morning's comments really, really advance that. i really take strong exception to mr. lindsey's point that the president does not want a deal. we actually believe that the president needs a deal almost as badly as the republicans. remember, he is a second-term president, and second-term presidents get very concerned about their long-term legacy. we have a recession in 2013, the republicans may be blamed short term, but that will bake in the cake four more years of weak economic growth and that would assure president obama has one of the weakest records of growth in history. he doesn't want that in the histor
's happening in japan. you guys may recall yesterday it was up .9%. this market has been on a tear this year. it's up more than 20 one of the best asset classes. the yen continues to weaken. there's two reasons why we're focusing here. we got weak economic data out of japan. industrial production decline. we saw core consumer prices decline. we can show you, though, what's happening with the yen. we're seeing the new finance minister coming out and saying to other countries, you know, look, we're not trying to materially weaken our yen and you have no place to accuse us of doing so. he says a strong dollar policy would benefit the u.s. very much so. and, again, might benefit japan, too, because that will make it a lot easier to get that yen lower. today, the dollar/yen is up .2% because it's important at this junction now that we've seen the new government come in, now that we've seen the new cabinet ministers, people who were expecting a lot of fiscal and monetary magic from to look at the data overnight and be reminded that it's no guarantee japan will magically be able to rejiger its econ
-month high on the notion that the urbanization plan will gain spurs in the housing stocks there. japan, abe confirmed as prime minister there. the seventh prime minister in the past six years. we did see the yen hit a 20-month low against the u.s. dollar. notable lows against the euro as well. the topics in the nikkai the lowest in nine months. >> going back to his old job, that he had back in 2007. strange in and of itself. i wonder how long it will take for people to start talking about netflix after the outage going into christmas eve on social media. they were calling it no flix. and to blame amazon web services, which is one of their huge growth engines. a unit of the company they say is probably a tenth of its eventual size. >> one of the highest growth parts of amazon right now, the web services portion. their amazon is down 1.25%. i don't know if that's the reason. but it was the streaming center in northern virginia that was the source of the netflix outage. it's resolved, though, as far as we know. we don't know what sort of impacting -- >> i waste a vin't a victim, bu sure a lot
-- recently last week i was in korea and japan doing some business over there to with companies. i did hear over and over again, there's a lot of concern over there about whether or not the folks in washington will be able to get a deal together. because it's unlikely that many of those companies there or here are going to be willing to invest, to hire, to put people to work unless there's some kind of resolution, some kind of clarity looking forward. >> we'll leave it there. good to have you on the program, sir. thanks very much, governor. >> thank you. >> jack markell. >> and this is not a knock on the governor, but did you notice like so many elected officials, they can't bring themselves to publicly say the word, we raised taxes, right? which is what they did and it worked, but we raised revenue. revenue has become the new catch word for taxes. >> right. we are raising stock prices right now. we were down 189. down 107 right now. >> is this decline a preview of what can come next week if we don't see a deal to avoid the cliff? we'll talk about it. >> also, antawn shutz gives us his best
of all that, true. >> not such a crummy year for japan. japanese stocks rallying you can the yen continuing its slide against the dollar in all the major currencies, in fact. asian markets mixed overnight trading. the nikkei climbing to a closing level not seen since just before the march 2011 earthquake, marking a third day of gains, mostly drive bine hopes for a new stimulus policy. the yen is sitting closes to the lowest level since september 2010 against the dollar. interesting here because now a lot of people are saying the best or the hottest trade in 2013 will, in fact, be long japanese stocks and short the yen because what's different this time around, now there is an actual target, 90 is the target. we know where it is going to go. if they are able to weaken the yen to that point, it is a core roll lary stocks will go higher, exactly what happened with the united states, ben bernanke ease he can the monetary policy and the 14% gain in the stock market this year. >> seen the yen basically strangling japanese exports for so long. >> exactly. >> so you know, obviously i the
in britain, in australia, in japan. japan has the toughest gun control in the world. they have two or three murders a year. you have 11,000 to 12,000 -- >> how many suicides do they have? >> 11,000 to 12,000 murders from guns a year in america. and you still don't care, do you? >> suicides are higher in japan than they are in america. they don't use guns. they have all kinds of ways to kill themselves. and you have a different culture in england. what has hurt this country is the drugs. the drugs have changed everything. you didn't hear about these shootings when i was growing up in the '50s and '60s. and then you didn't need a background check to buy a gun. now with all the drugs, all the stuff we're treating kids with these psychotic drugs, it's causing some real problems in our community. almost all of these kids that have murdered, if you look at them, they have been treated with drugs for their mental problems. and it's changing something. it's taking away their empathy where they can do this kind of horrible thing and not feel remorse or fear or terror of what they're doing. they just
in australia and france and the uk and happens in japan, but for some reason i don't see them grieving over 20 children that have been slain in their schools. that does come down to a question of our gun problem and gun culture and the way we cope with it. i know the families in this town when they are past their grieving and they never will be, but one of the things people want to do here in newtown united is to give them a platform and a voice and let's hear what they have to say. >> two things you mentioned. newtown united and the goals for the organization. you mentioned having knew or met nancy lanza. can you give impressions of her from meeting her? >> it is a small town and a bunch of us play tuesday night ultimate frisbee in one of the local playing fields. we want to have a beer and we go to this place called my place. you have seen it on the news. nancy was i don't want to say a regular, but she was there and i chatted with her. a seemingly pleasant person and i'm sure she was. that's it. that's how small towns work, right? when i wait and saw i knew a number of people who lost a lov
of japan easing monetary policy again today, announcing an increase of its asset buying and lending program by more than $118 billion. that move was widely expected as part of the reason that you had seen the yen under quite a bit of pressure, yesterday, at least. you'll see right now that in japan, the market there actually closed down by just over 1%, 1.2% almost. the hang seng and the shanghai composite were slightly higher. oil prices this morning, you'll see right now, are down by about 4 cents to $89.94, so you have things to pick up in those prices over the last couple of days. and the ten-year note at this point which yesterday was yielding above 1.8%, dropping down to 77.2%. finally, take a look at the dollar and gold. yen is at 83.99. gold prices this morning with all these movements in the currency markets up by about $1.10. >>> winter storm draco is moving across the united states threatening retailers and holiday travelers. paul, we know that sometimes the storms could be a good thing for some retailers, particularly if you're selling things from home depot or the likes of thos
is going to be, fiscal cliff going into the end of the year, we'll start to focus on europe and japan printing money over there. we'll get back into the macroeconomic horizons and see how it goes. but yeah. i think there's been some outflows in certain sectors, risk is on here. >> all right. bill nichols how are you playing this waiting game right now? >> i think one of the real interesting sectors one of the guests mentioned is the action in financials. you look at bank america and you haven't seen any real participation in the financial sector for four or five years. that's one to keep an eye on. you may see a meaningful move. that could be good for the market. >> you don't think it's too late -- >> -- next year in terms of a tax increase. >> bank of america is the best performing this year. it's not too late to get into that? you think there's more to come? >> look at the short-term move and it looks good. look at a five or six year chart and it's a different story. looks like you've got more room on the upside. >> rick santelli, jump in here. what are you seeing in chicago the mov

now. >> it did with hindsight, but you never know. >> you don't. >> but you look at japan, they never did what they needed to do. and here we are, we escaped the financial crisis and the money market, it looked like it was going to freeze up and the huge fortune 500 companies. we avoided that but we just keep -- it's like we think we're permanently okay from negative situations and i don't know if we are. things happen in this world. it's still tough, right? >> it is. but this is a very important topic. >> you borrow too much and sooner or later austerity is awful. but if you can't just keep the credit card going if your kid has -- if it's 50,000, you don't say here's another 50. i don't want you to tighten your belt. >> that's why in the final analysis i think the administration recognizes that and they're going to -- >> this administration? >> yeah, is going to come to the table on the entitlement cuts that need to happen to make the deal work. >> you were with him a couple days ago, right? >> with some of his top advisers. >> you can't say which one? >> a group -- valerie jarron an
for david? >> well, no. i want to talk about japan. i know our audience is carrying a lot more these days about the fiscal cliff, but we've got another cliff of sorts coming up in japan, the electrics sunday. everyone is expecting that abe follows in the footsteps of mr. draghi and europe and mr. bernanke here in the u.s. we can more yen printing, that weakens the yen. maybe american investors can make some money in japanese stocks. i'd be curious where you think the election is going. does it matter? >> i think the world has more possibility that your pen might change course as far as monitoring fiscal policy after the elections. but the japanese realize when you play with fire, you might end up burning down the house. jgb's nine times tier one capital, if they're not careful, they can trigger a run on jgb and the house base comes tumbling down. so i think actually the next government is tokyo will be a lot more cautious. i think the market is -- >> so we can get another huge disappointment. so everyone thinks the dollar/yen is finally going to go up, you can make money on the yen short

-party countries, the united states, south korea, japan, russia, china. china is a big player here, because they have the most influence. they have to figure out how to deal with this new leader. i mean, they've got nuclear weapons. they've got missile technology, but they're also very poor. they're also possibly their sending a trial balloon saying, we want to bargain. i don't know, because very few people have met this new leader and which direction he wants to go is still uncertain. >> so in a lot of all that, i mean, what do you recommend if you were actually advising president obama at this time to do? people don't know who he is. he, obviously, is trying to do the muscle flex here. the six-party talks have been a failure. they basically ended back in 2009. what would you recommend? >> well, i'm not privy to their deliberations. what i would recommend is, first, you do have to fulfill obligations under the security council. there was a violation of missile launching. but i think a more creative way to deal with him needs to happen, and it has to solve south korea, japan, china and us p
